    The last time I tried it, the only thing I 'won' was a Cease and Desist Order! :(

    I quit this year. No time since going back to school. Collecting is too competitive and I can't afford the distraction. Keeping about 20% but I've been slowly selling off a lot. I may be back but considering 3 more years of school, two years of internship, and making a career it is doubtful.

    I linger though. There are some good minds on skullbrain and I like to check the banter occasionally.

    Totally appreciate that aspect. For me it was a very welcome side aspect to break away mentally from the hard work and stress of studies, but you definitely have to develop your own balance. What is it you are going back to school for?

    I am busy creating my profile on PsychologyToday and other sites. Definitely adding that in! I could even offer to be paid in toys...

    Why I Sold My Collection video

    On this episode, Dan talks about the need to collect everything and how quickly it can get out of hand. He also talks about selling his collection to save his collection, his moment of clarity, and getting things under control.

    I thought it was posted before. But didn't want to look for it. A good video that deserves to be posted again.
